Science is constantly changing– we’re generating new data and developing new models faster than we can understand how they should all fit together.
My tool, the Distributed Meta-Analysis System, is ready to go, and I want to write more about it. But I also want to point people to two other interesting projects that seem to be trying to make science work better:
The Open Science Framework is trying to get people to make their data and papers and science, in general, available for all.
Curate Science is trying to solve the replication problem, encourage people to post their replication results and identifying needs.
For me, this is also about what might be called “Evolutionary Modeling”: modeling as a social and ongoing endeavor, involving many groups and combining their results in institutional ways. Science 2.0 is coming.
